Additional information

UPSIDE DOWN UNDER
After several years missing national selection, broke through in 2016 Australian summer after second stint in Sydney, training with main Commonwealth rival and former world champion Dani STEVENS (AUS). Arriving with personal best 60.76m, threw 64.22m in Auckland in February 2016, then two days later, 65.10m in Sydney. (spikes.iaaf.org, 1 April 2016; Athlete, Dec 2017)


BEST OF ENEMIES
Enjoys training with Dani STEVENS. "I'm friendly with most of my rivals. Don't get me wrong, we all want to beat each other, but there is respect there. And once the competition is over, we become normal women with a lot in common. A big part of an athlete's life is travel, so if you've got friends all over the world, that's only going to go in your favour." (Athlete, Dec 2017)


LIVESTOCK AUDIENCE
Father built discus circle in local farmer's field after training at a local leisure centre did not meet her requirements. Initial wooden boards warped in rain but owner said a concrete circle constructed to Olympic specifications could be put in. "I had a cow in with me once. I didn't like that. But the sheep are fine, they tend to run away when they realise you're throwing. The alpacas come over, but if you make yourself look imposing they scuttle off. The llamas are more inquisitive. They stand on the edge of the circle, stare at you and spit." (dailymail.co.uk, 19 May 2012)
